UNION VALLEY VOLUNTEER
The Union Valley vol. Fire Department has put into service a new 2012 Ford F350 medical rescue squad. The new squad is dedicated to the memory of long time chief Leonard Plemmons who passed away July of 2011. Chief Plemmons dedicated over 20 + years to serving his community as a firefighter. After retiring from the Union Valley Fire Dept. he volunteered for the Red Cross for several years until his death. The squad will be used as a first responder vehicle for medical emergencies and will also respond to motor vehicle accidents. The truck will be equipped with medical supplies and rescue tools. The truck was purchased using funds received from taxes paid to the Hunt County Hospital district. The new truck is replacing a 1988 Ford F350 that was used for the same duties.
